Unhappy I'm sorry Coria~ I was wrong


* Today I watched possibly the most dramatic Slam Final i can remember & to be honest i think Coria deserved to win this more than Gaudio. Of course I'm very happy for Gaston because he's shown that it's possible to turn around a career & a 0-6,3-6,1-3 deficit for the biggest win of his career; also he's a nice guy & great emotion to pull off the miracle !

HOWEVER in a post yesterday I said some nasty things about Coria "...he's not a man..." etc. WELL I WAS TOTALLY WRONG~ Coria showed me how gracious he can be in defeat; when it must have crushed his extraordinary spirit to see such a big lead slip away when it mattered most!

Coria Mate you are a hero & from this day on you'll be getting plenty more support from the fans I'm sure. You deserved the FO title this year BUT sports are cruel like this; I'm sure your chance will come again~~ then I hope you'll grap it with both hands !

CORIA YOU'RE THE MAN !!!

I can't tell you how happy that makes me, mate. It makes me a little misty eyed to see that someone who recognizes the gallant fighting spirit that goes by the name of Lleyton Hewitt, has come to recognize the same gallantry in Coria.

Re: I'm sorry Coria~ I was wrong

That truely was a beautiful post CmonAussie.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: I'm sorry Coria~ I was wrong

Coria's not my favorite, but he was as gracious as could be expected under the circumstances.

I don't think the issue is the giant lead that he blew, but rather the two championship points he had. That's gonna kill him.

I didn't really like Coria, but I do feel horrible for him.
